I wonder. Can the brain invent smells that really aren't there?
I was driving home from work last night and all of the sudden, out of the blue, I get a huge whiff of potato chips and dip. But just for one brief second. Then it was gone. But the windows were rolled up and there was no one and nothing in the car except for me. How did this happen?
But of course NOW I'm craving chips and dip so bad I can't see straight! I was doing fine, too. No cravings all week. Ugh!
I went walking again last night with my WW group. There were actually fewer of us last night than the night before. Oh, well. We had a blast anyways. I post a picture later. Another lady took a picture of us all and she's gonna email it to me.
I'm in a dilemma. I know, you're saying, Cara when are you NOT in a dilemma. And, no, it's not the Pound for Pound Challenge. :] It's my weight. I'm steady gaining this week and I have no idea why.
I have not splurged or over indulged. Not even on Saturday or Sunday. I've eaten within my points every day. I've exercised every day, but not over doing it, so I'm sure it's not muscle gain. It's not around that time of the month. I just don't get it. I've been up between 2/10ths and 4/10ths every day. I've accumulated a total of 1.8 pounds since weigh in on Saturday. I don't know what I'm doing wrong.
Maybe it is the exercise. I thought my legs were sore, but I realize now its just my right calf. I think I pulled a muscle last Friday and it's still nagging me. My legs, other than that, really feel fine. I only did walking twice this week and I have to be honest with myself and say that I did not over exert myself there. The walking was more like walking through a park or around a mall. I didn't burn alot of calories either time. I did the Gazelle twice this week but only for 15 minutes each time. But this is supposed to help me lose weight not gain.
I know they say you gain muscle when you exercise. But this is ridiculous. I'm not really exercising. I'm just moving more. So there shouldn't be any muscle gain to it. Then what the heck is it?!?
All I want is to lose 100 pounds. That's all I want. Is that so much to ask. I swear, I'm NOT sabotaging myself this time. I haven't had any of the tendencies I had before. I'm steady and focused and loving it. I don't think I'm stressed about anything. I mean, any more than usual. Yes, my life is plenty stressful, but who's isn't right now anyways.
Oh, well. Steady on. I was joking with my WW leader last night that I hope I can get my 100 pounds by NEXT Thanksgiving. I was supposed to reach it this past Thanksgiving. The way I'm going, it might be Thanksgiving of 2010.
